111. Exploring Kirwin

After visiting  Kirwin Reservior and National Wildlife Refuge, we decided to explore the community of Kirwin.  It is a small community, but there is still a lot of history when you drive around Town Square.  You can find historical markers about Fort Kirwin, Camp Kirwin, and Station 13.  You can also see a large, brick building in the square that once was the city office and fire department.  It is now the city office and library.  On the way out of town, we saw a sign pointing to the school and decided to follow it.  It probably led to the current school building, but we managed to find a one-room school along the way.  It is always fun to find interesting little pieces of history on our adventures.
